You may have already guessed it, but I have fallen off the Whole 30 wagon and landed square on my bum. But, I’m resilient and some may even say stubborn!
Our oldest just turned four! FOUR! I’m not even sure how that’s possible, but the tall human who replaced my baby girl assures me it is. She’s silly, and funny and a ton of fun and everything I could ever want in a daughter. We moved to NYC on New Year’s Eve, and she was born just a few weeks later. She loves the city, so for her birthday we took her and little brother to celebrate. And celebrate we did!
We went to Max Brenner for lunch and had chocolate pizza. It was worth it.
Then a few days later we had drinks.
So today I figured I already lost this Whole 30 game and I’d hop on the scale. I was surprised and thrilled to see that I have lost 12 pounds in just 24 days, despite my cheating. Then I realized that I was wearing the same outfit as my day one photo, so I asked my husband to take some photos. To say that I am motivated now would be an understatement!
Note to self: You’re not Arnold, put your arms down in the next photo set

So I’m determined, I have fire in my belly and I’m ready to do this. Tomorrow is technically Day One…again. Except I shall refer to it as Day 25 of my Whole 55, because my mental state can not take calling it day one. Is that cool with y’all? (Because I’m doing it anyway. Stubborn, remember?)
I’m heading back to the gym tomorrow. I love working out. I love lifting.
I also loved my personal trainer, but adulting got in the way of that. I lost my mojo and felt discouraged. I didn’t even want to be there any more.
I figured I already own Jen Sinkler’s Lift Weights Faster 2 so I might as well use it, right? I’m going to figure out my schedule and the plan of attack now.
(Maybe not like now now. Maybe after a spoonful of some vanilla almond butter that I’ve been avoiding since it has palm sugar and isn’t compliant. After all, day one doesn’t start until tomorrow, right?!)
